  1. Sorry , I was a bit vague. Call your local Tandy store. I assume since the Montreal location is closed , Markham or Mississauga location is who you want to call for any alcohol based dies , finishes or contact cements.
  2. Call your local store for Fiebing's dies (pro or regular) and order them over the phone . I am also sure they might be able to answer some of your questions too
  3. I've been making dog collars for a long time...this is an interesting design that I've never seen before
  4. When you say padding , is that some kind of foam inside your soft leather ? I am only using 3-4 oz soft leather for my "padding" nothing stuffed inside ...it is more for aesthetics . If needed , the softer rolled edges are more than enough protection in my opinion
  5. I think the padding is way to thick. With or without the top strap attached , a padding that thick will wrinkle regardless , when bent into a circle . If I am making a collar using two ply , I am always gluing them together around a form. My padding is not nearly as thick of yours and I still get a bit of wrinkles . I am using different size PVC pipes as forms ... helps me with collar sizing too .
  6. Did you called your local Tandy? The website shows "out of stock" but some stores might actually have it
  7. My dog collar cost me well over $10000 so far ... welcome to the club. You do nice work !
  8. Make round holes around curves...you are not gonna have that problem anymore..especially in small radius curves. Also start making your holes from the center of the curve and work your way up on both sides..this way your last stitches , left and right side, will be equally distant from your key ring
  9. I drove all the way to Toledo from Toronto Canada...never regretted it...Bob was great Dealt with Cobra and their customer service is impeccable ...they went the extra mile to help me when they didn;t have to Either way , you can't go wrong
  10. I apply the satin finish (or any other finish) using an air brush , regardless of the dye i am using.
  11. It does the job. I like the portability , easy to set up, cuts through 8-9oz easily
  12. I've been looking for one of those for more that a year with no luck. Best option is to order a brand new one if you have the money
  13. I have a Nakajima 341 using the singer 111 feet...they don't fit the techsew 2800...the setting screw holes don't align
